The omelet is my fav. Bacon, cheddar and jalapeno is hard to beat. The peppers were fresh and very tasty. Plenty of attention to detail and coffee.

We had dinner on Tuesday night (July 29th). We ordered one meal to share. We got catfish and 2 sides and a separate salad. The sides and salad were excellent, the catfish was overdone (and may have been sitting for a while) so it was not too tasty. The hush puppies were very good. The portion was plenty to share....

Checked out the Blue Plate with family and first thing that shocked us was the size of the menu! The number of choices was staggering and this always worries me. I know a restaurant that offers that many choices doesnt cook anything fresh. Still the food was food and well prepared and the price was very reasonable. They also had... More

Hi! I am a little confused by your review, because our menu is small and we also do not have a large counter of desserts. I am wondering if you have eaten at City Cafe Diner instead, which is on Drake Ave, whereas we are located on Governor's Drive? If you haven't tried us yet, come visit soon! Thank you... More

We stayed in Huntsville on our drive down to FL and it's so nice to be able to find some good food instead of eating fast food again. The waitress was very attentive and treated our kids very nicely. We has the fried catfish and meatloaf and they were both good. We would definitely come here again!

Blue Plate Cafe is amazing! Lively, kind, and delicious food! 4 or 5 specials of the day, and that's about all you can order! Everything was amazing, and I cleaned my plate. Can't wait to go back and enjoy their other specials! Amazing southern food. Just go and try it yourself!

Downtown Huntsville has only a few good places for breakfast or lunch. Most restaurant are the big chains, but I was totally please with the Blue Plate Café. The service is quick and caring. The food is good and wholesome, while the prices are in line with normal expectations. But the sweet tea is what really made this pleasurable dining.... More

We're locals and have been eating here for years. All the food is true southern food and it's delicious. My favorites are chicken & dressing, dumplings, hash brown casserole, squash (only on certain days), strawberry shortcake (Monday only). Those are my favs but I've never had a bad meal here. Breakfast is great too. This is where the locals eat... More

We ate here this morning for breakfast. The food was great and cooked to our liking. Eggs, omelets, gravy, bacon...it was all very good. I want to go back and try their pancakes and french toast, too. The waitress was very sweet and did a wonderful job.

I recently visited the Blue Plate Cafe for breakfast and it was a great experience. The food was good Southern cooking, the sweet tea was great, and the employees were very friendly and attentive. The prices are good and your drinks are never empty. Definitely recommend!

This was a great place to enjoy some down-home southern food during my visit to Huntsville. Prices were reasonable. The fruit plate was amazing.
